Pune: NCP Chief Sharad Pawar expressed satisfaction over Nitin Gadkari’s work and said he is speeding up pending projects.
Pawar was speaking at the inauguration of the flyover at Chandni Chowk.
He said, “Many roads in the district have gained importance. Around 15,000 people work in the technology sector. The vehicles manufactured in Pune are exported across the country. Dighi in Pune is one of the industrial trade routes which connects industrial markets across the country. But from Rajguru Nagar to reach Chakan it takes one-and-half hours. I have had this experience. This situation happens even when I have a pilot escort, then what about the common people,” he said.
Pune city MP Anil Shirole also praised Gadkari’s work. He said, “Because of Nitin Gadkari the long pending land acquisition at the Pune airport is now done.”
MP Shivajirao Adhalrao Patil said, “The question of bypass road was pending for a long time, finally the work started today. The work of Khed and Sinnar started in 2013, now work of Junnar to Bhimashankar Ojhar, Lenadri Rajguru Nagar roads should start soon.”
Guardian Minister Girish Bapat said, “The roads coming to Pune see huge traffic jams. The passenger traffic at the airport increased by 25 times. The actual work of the metro in Pune and the work of the ring road started because of Gadkari.”
